Debbie Wiens is a qualified dance teacher, professional dancer, gymnastic instructor and certified aerobics instructor.

Debbie has danced in the various dramatic dance productions, worked as a team leader, choreographed shows, been the program director for youth teams, staffed performing arts camps, and served as a back up singer/dancer for rock and Hip Hop bands.
